It was 1991 when Zenie thought about starting a business in New Zealand to produce shows featuring Filipino celebrities. She was about to go back home to Auckland with her husband and their two children after her husband’s two and half years posting in Nairobi, Kenya had come to an end. It was a sort of middle age crisis, whether to find employment or to start a business in a field that no-one in the Filipino community had done before.

Sunshine, glorious sunshine! What a wet winter we had here in Auckland and now it seems like spring is here. Mornings are still chilly but it won’t be long now for the t-shirt, shorts and jandal weather, I can’t wait. The team at Lingaw Duwa are doing the sporting event again on Saturday 30th September and NZPBC is joining. This Filipino sporting event aims to promote Philippine traditional and indigenous games to strengthen the bond among various Filipino groups and introduce these games to other cultures.
Congratulations to Lito Banal and Marjorie Bennett!
